New Glasses

We picked up Kendall's new glasses yesterday! They are super cute, light, and she's tolerating them well.

When we take them off, she I guess that means she's seeing with them on.

And to think, two and a half years ago, there was a possibility she wouldn't see at all. Between the two dense cataracts she had to have removed and her diagnosed cortical vision impairment, the odds were definitely not in her favor.

To all the moms out there with children diagnosed with CVI, please, please, don't give up. With correction, Kendall can track objects across a room and see fairly well. Her nystagmus and strabismus is still pretty obvious, and looking at her you would never think she could see. But she can. She does.

We had one Dr. (a guy we saw for second opinions back in the "searching for answers" days) tell us her vision will be like anything else on her. Delayed. But with time and hard work, it will develop. And so it did!!!

Have I mentioned lately how proud I am of her? Well...I am. Very, very, proud! :)

love the new glasses! Thanks for the CVI encouragment! It is amazing how much more our little one seems to be able to see in just four months!
